Nevada Dirt Bike Crashes

Dirt bikes are popular for recreation in Nevada, and riders of all ages enjoy riding these vehicles. Unfortunately, they leave riders exposed in the event of a collision. Emergency departments across the United States admit roughly 23,800 off-road riders each year. Victims under the age of 16 make up nearly 69.9 percent of these patients, and almost 88.4 percent are male. An overwhelming 97.1 percent of the injured parties were riding a dirt bike at the time of the accident, compared to just 2.9 percent who were hurt as bystanders.
